Mark wins Photographer of the Year award in national competition

I am delighted to have won the prestigious title of Click Photographer of the Year 2011, by the Click and Fresh group at a very special awards ceremony in North London on Sunday evening. I am so excited to have been selected from so many entries from plenty of other superb images.

I have been a member of this photographic group for around 5 years now who specialise in promoting and marketing professional photographers who specialise in
studio photography covering family portraits, baby photography, makeovers and more. The group is made up of over 100 studios nationwide and is dedicated to raising the quality of professional photography ensuring its members deliver nothing but the best to its customers. I entered 10 images, 4 of which were shortlisted to win. With only two categories, one for makeover and boudoir photography and one for portraits, the competition was very tough with over 500 entries to choose from. The SWPP (Society of Wedding and Portrait Phototgraphers) judged the competition, who I have done many talks and seminars for over the years at their amazing annual photographic convention in London.

I hope to have a few quotes from Charlie and the judges to pass on soon - so watch this space!

SWPP convention 2012 - teaching Adobe InDesign

I have been giving talks and training seminars for many years often talking about running my own business and sharing information of wedding and portrait photography. I wanted to give back something a little different this year, and being a bit if a "techy" I wanted to share my knowledge of a very powerful piece of industry standard design software that has been a part of my workflow for many years.

professional training by Cambridge photographer Mark Ashworth

I love talking to fellow photographers and this annual convention is packed full of people wanting to learn from trainers and teachers with all genres in photography, especially wedding and portrait photography. I gave two talks on designing wedding album pages using Adobe Indesign - both of which were well attended. Covering the basics from creating a new document, to working with your images, creating designs and templates and exporting for print.

Further courses are likely to be run in the form of webinars, basically training on line giving you the opportunity of learning right from your own desk at work or from your own home.
